On a vacation trip to Chattanooga we had plenty of time to travel so rather than taking the interstate which would normally take two and a half hours we took Georgia highways alternate twenty seven, twenty seven and 100. The reason we like to do this is it gives us time to see the scenery and small towns that are bypassed by the interstate highways.
Passing through small towns like Carrolton for lunch at the Corner Cafe with the beautiful mural, Sangre de Cristina Sunrise, by Kate Moon Davis.
Cedartown and Summerville are two other towns we would never have experienced if we went roaring by on the interstate.
It was raining as we passed the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National and Military Park so we didn't stop.
We stayed at the Bluff View Inn over looking the Tennessee River in Chattanooga.
From there we were able to walk to many of the attractions, Restaurants and stores with a lot of art work on display.
A visit to the Tennessee Aquarium is worthwhile as they show how the water flows down from the mountains to the ocean creating Habitats for many creatures along the way.
A dinner cruise on the Southern Belle up to Chickamauga Dam.
One bad ass 1959 Buick LeSabre lowrider in front of Rembrandt's Coffee House.
It was an enjoyable, relaxing getaway. Take the time to enjoy the ride.
